Hand: Having a Hoot


"Hoot?" Get it? 'cause this post has owls...oh nevermind.

More fun with Annie Oakleaves patterns, only these come in a form of a test pattern that I volunteered to help stitch.

This one is the biggest of all the owls:


This one is my not-so-secret favorite:


This one I call "Tweaky," 'cause really, look at those eyes:

He looks like he's been awake for three days straight! In a cute way.

I'm hoping to stitch these onto some nice, rich, mustard colored napkins I picked up, in a patch sort of way. 'cause really, what dinner table doesn't need some owls to spice it up?

These remind me of my Grandmother's house. Owls plus 70s colors equals wise old bird.

i'm beginning to love owls. a few of my friends have proclaimed their love a while back. i guess i'm just slow.

Thanks, Frenzykat! I was slow on the owl love myself, I always found them a little too...kitchy, I guess? But after stitching these up I'm a believer.

These owls are so adorable! Are they in the embroidery group on Flickr? If not, they really should be!

Your holiday traditions sound delicious - I'm looking forward to tamales, too. Thanks for being part of the Feeling Stitchy Comment Expedition and have a wonderful holiday!

Thank *you*, Floresita, for organizing the game! It's been fun.

Yup, the owls are in the embroidery group. Always the first place I go to share my needlework :)
